Hometown: Towson, Maryland
October 2, 2011
I'm usually more of a "head in the sand" type of person, but I really don't want to be one of the desparate masses totally unprepared when we're all suddenly on our own. Since I have no family here, I really will be needing to rely only on myself and any supplies and skills I have- which at this point are exactly none! I've been interested lately in getting prepared but didn't know where to go to get information I need on how to get started. Was very happy to see the article in Phoenix magazine that mentions this meetup group. Although this group is located way across town from me (I live in North Glendale), I like the topics you cover and hope you'll repeat some of them for those of us who missed them the first time. Hoping to meet other "normal" people who don't want to be caught totally unprepared.
Though I really doubt I'd make it long term through any extreme change in our living conditions (not even sure I'd want to!), I want to be prepared enough to at least not be panic-stricken and lost at the outset, able to land on my feet the first few weeks at the very least. I want to have time to stand a chance in dealing with societal changes.
Self and property (i.e. food & water) defense, when & where to bug out, finding & preparing shelter & food away from 'civilization'. what to stock to prep my own home pre-bug-out.
Hi, I'm a "normal" older, single, sedentary female with no family in the area to depend on or assist me in case of a drastic change in society. I'm turned off by hard-core survivalists who are guided by anti-government or religious sentiments.
SO much great info, and so glad I joined.
